A man arrested for a stabbing death in Olathe, Kansas has confessed to robbing a Chappell Hill bank in March.

The wild series of events started on Tuesday when Olathe, Kansas police responded to a crash on Interstate 35. A car had crashed into the median and when police arrived, the two people inside the car started to run. After catching the two men, police discovered the driver, Ziahdrick D. Williams of Navasota had been stabbed. Williams died from his injuries at an Olathe hospital. The passenger, Christopher Blacklock, of Hockley, was arrested and charged with 1st Degree Murder.

Blacklock is being held in Johnson County, Kansas on $2,000,000 bond.

Authorities say Blacklock and Williams were in the process of transporting drugs to Iowa.

Washinton County, Texas detectives tell News 3 Blacklock confessed to Kansas and Washington County authorities to robbing the Chappell Hill Bank in March. Charges have yet to be filed against Blacklock in the robbery.

Two other people were also taken into custody by Kansas police. Hempstead residents Eric B. Blake-Eakin and Leshun P. Curtis were both arrested on the scene. Blake-Eakin was charged with possession with intent to sell drugs, while Curtis was charged with felony possession. Both are held in Johnson County, KS on $100,000 bond. Washington County investigators say it is too early to rule out Blake-Eakin and Curtis as persons of interest in the March Chappell Hill Bank Robbery.
